Bought for only $2850 from auto
auction with 61,000 miles in 1998. Now
have 111,000. I've replaced brakes,
battery, tires, both CV joints,
exhaust system, air intake hose. Only
CV joints and intake were "non
consumables". I've never been
stranded by the car. Very happy with
1.8L DOHC engine, 30 mpg and fun to
rev. Clutch is original.
Bad: both CV joints failed, one at
105k and the other at 110k. Air intake
hose cracked and went at 100k. Rear
doors now "stiff" to close. Sways more
than it should in corners. No ABS, no
Good: Reliable, economical, roomier
than it looks.
